Dr.Nina Roos says that our skin is a window into what’s going on elsewhere in the body, so it would be one of the first places we will notice if there is off in terms of our overall health.
The skin around the eyes is highly delicate since it is five times thinner than the rest of the face. This makes the area under the eyes prone to swelling and puffiness, dark circles, dryness, and itchiness.
These symptoms can be caused by numerous factors, both external and internal. Genetics is important for the health of our skin, as well as our lifestyle habits, which contribute to its appearance and might lead to various skin issues.
Stress, smoking, and fatigue are a big no-no, as they are among the main causes of the tired-looking under-eye area, and sun-related damage makes the skin prone to dryness and dehydration.
Yet, most commercial eye creams are very expensive, rich in fillers and chemicals that might lead to numerous adverse effects, and often fail to deliver the desired effects.
Therefore, we suggest the following simple 3-ingredient eye cream that will protect the delicate skin around the eyes and prevent premature aging and wrinkles:
- 2 vitamin E capsules
- 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil
- 2-3 drops frankincense essential oil
